Nando's is one of the most popular fast food chains on the high street, with more than 1,000 branches around the world. Over 280 of those branches are located in the UK and Northern Ireland: Mitchell's Scaffolding recently designed and installed bespoke scaffolding at one of these branches.
Nando's was founded in South Africa in 1987, after friends Fernando Duarte and Robert Brozin went for a meal together at a local takeaway named 'Chickenland'. So impressive was the food that the friends decided to purchase the outlet, paying the equivalent of around £25,000.
After renaming the restaurant 'Nando's' (after Fernando's son), the business quickly grew, with three further outlets opening within two years. The first Nando's in the UK opened in 1992 and, after an initial struggle, became the fast food giant that it is today, employing more than 8,000 UK staff.
The branch of Nando's in Cheetham Hill, Manchester, is located in the busy Fort Street Retail Park. When a substantial amount of renovation and repair work was planned to the outside of the building, the owners contacted Mitchell's Scaffolding to request scaffolding to provide safe, secure and easy access to various areas of the structure.
The scaffolding was quickly erected, allowing work to progress quickly. Minimal disruption was caused to customers of the Nando's and adjacent areas within the retail park. Once the work was completed, we reversed the process and removed all trace of the scaffold.
